The area described contains 3.75 acres, more or less. This parcel of public land is proposed for sale to Nhu Thi Tran at no less than the FMV as determined by the authorized officer after appraisal. An appraisal report has been prepared by a state certified appraiser for the purposes of establishing FMV. The FMV of the parcel to be offered for sale is $6,800. The appraisal report is available for public review at the BLM Las Vegas Field Office. Nhu Thi Tran is requesting to purchase the parcel of public lands surrounded by her private land and U.S. Highway 95. There is no legal access to the parcel from the highway or otherwise. Federal regulations governing sales of public land at 43 CFR 2711.3–3 state that direct sale (without competition) may be utilized, when in the opinion of the authorized officer, a competitive sale is not appropriate and the public interest would best be served by direct sale. Examples include, but are not limited to the adjoining ownership pattern and access indicates a direct sale is appropriate. Once the authorized officer has determined that the lands will be offered by direct sale and such determination has been issued, published and sent in accordance with procedures of this part, payment shall be made by certified check, postal money order, bank draft or cashier’s check made payable to the Bureau of Land Management as outlined in 43 CFR 2711.3–1(c) of this subpart.

The subject parcel contains 3.75 acres and has .9 usable acre after deducting the U.S. Highway 95 right-of-way. Due to the parcel’s triangular shape, lack of access, encumbrances with high voltage power lines and the freeway right-of-way, there is minimal use and value. Based on the lack of public use and value, Tran’s land surrounding the property, and because no public ingress and egress has been provided to these lands, the authorized officer has concluded that a direct sale is warranted.

Certain minerals from this parcel will be reserved to the United States in accordance with the BLM’s approved Mineral Potential Report, dated January 22, 1999. Minerals to be reserved to the United States are all leasable and all saleable minerals.

    The area described contains 3.75 acres, more or less.

    This parcel of public land is proposed for sale to Nhu Thi Tran at 
no less than the FMV as determined by the authorized officer after 
appraisal. An appraisal report has been prepared by a state certified 
appraiser for the purposes of establishing FMV. The FMV of the parcel 
to be offered for sale is $6,800. The appraisal report is available for 
public review at the BLM Las Vegas Field Office.
    Nhu Thi Tran is requesting to purchase the parcel of public lands 
surrounded by her private land and U.S. Highway 95. There is no legal 
access to the parcel from the highway or otherwise.
    Federal regulations governing sales of public land at 43 CFR 
2711.3-3 state that direct sale (without competition) may be utilized, 
when in the opinion of the authorized officer, a competitive sale is 
not appropriate and the public interest would best be served by direct 
sale. Examples include, but are not limited to the adjoining ownership 
pattern and access indicates a direct sale is appropriate. Once the 
authorized officer has determined that the lands will be offered by 
direct sale and such determination has been issued, published and sent 
in accordance with procedures of this part, payment shall be made by 
certified check, postal money order, bank draft or cashier's check made 
payable to the Bureau of Land Management as outlined in 43 CFR 2711.3-
1(c) of this subpart. Failure to accept an offer to purchase the 
offered lands within the time specified by the authorized officer shall 
constitute a waiver of this preference consideration.
    This federal parcel is bordered on three sides by private lands 
owned by Nhu Thi Tran and on the fourth side by U.S. Highway 95. The 
subject parcel contains 3.75 acres and has .9 usable acre after 
deducting the U.S. Highway 95 right-of-way. Due to the parcel's 
triangular shape, lack of access, encumbrances with high voltage power 
lines and the freeway right-of-way, there is minimal use and value. 
Based on the lack of public use and value, Tran's land surrounding the 
property, and because no public ingress and egress has been provided to 
these lands, the authorized officer has concluded that a direct sale is 
warranted.
    This sale is in conformance with the Las Vegas Resource Management 
Plan, approved October 5, 1998. BLM has determined that the sale action 
conforms to the land use plan decision LD-1 under the authority of 
FLPMA. The land contains no other known public values. The parcel has 
not been identified for transfer to the State or any other local 
government or non-profit organization. The environmental assessment, 
master title plat map, and approved appraisal report dated July 17, 
2008, covering the proposed sale are available for review at the Las 
Vegas Field Office.
    Certain minerals from this parcel will be reserved to the United 
States in accordance with the BLM's approved Mineral Potential Report, 
dated January 22, 1999. Minerals to be reserved to the United States 
are all leasable and all saleable minerals. Acceptance of the offer to 
purchase will constitute an application for conveyance of the ``no 
known value'' mineral interests. In conjunction with the final payment, 
the applicant for ``no known value'' mineral interests will be required 
to pay a $50 non-refundable filing fee for processing the conveyance of 
the mineral interest which will be sold simultaneously with the surface 
interests.
    Terms and Conditions of Sale: The patent issued would contain the

for review during business hours, 7:30 a.m.--4:30 p.m. PST, Monday 
through Friday, at the Las Vegas Field Office.
    Maps delineating the individual proposed sale parcel and current 
appraisal for the parcel are available for public review at the Las 
Vegas Field Office.
    No warranty of any kind, express or implied, is given by the United 
States as to the title, physical condition, or potential use of the 
parcel of land proposed for sale, and the conveyance of any such parcel 
will not be on a contingency basis. It is the buyer's responsibility to 
be aware of all applicable federal, state and local government policies 
and regulations that would affect the subject lands. It is also the 
buyer's responsibility to be aware of existing or prospective uses of 
nearby properties. Any land lacking access from a public road or 
highway will be conveyed as such, and future access acquisition will be 
the responsibility of the buyer.
    Under 43 CFR 2711.3-1 (c) and (d), a deposit of not less than 20 
percent of the federally approved FMV must be submitted, 30 days from 
the date of the sale offer, by 4:30 p.m. PST at the Las Vegas Field 
Office. Payment must be made in the form of certified check, postal 
money order, bank draft, or cashier's check made payable in U.S. 
dollars to the order of the DOI-Bureau of Land Management.
    Failure to submit the deposit will result in forfeiture of the sale 
offer. Remainder of the purchase price must be paid within 180 calendar 
days following the date of the sale offer. Failure to pay the full 
price within the 180 days will disqualify the sale offer and cause the 
entire 20 percent deposit to be forfeited to the BLM. No exceptions 
will be made. BLM cannot accept the full price at any time following 
the 180th day after the sale offer. Payment must be received in the 
form of a certified check, postal money order, bank draft, or cashier's 
check made payable in U.S. dollars to the order of the DOI-Bureau of 
Land Management. Personal checks will not be accepted. Arrangements for 
electronic fund transfer to BLM for the balance due shall be made a 
minimum of two weeks prior to the date you wish to make payment.
    The BLM may accept or reject any or all offers to purchase any 
parcel, or may withdraw any parcel of land or interest therein from 
sale, if, in the opinion of the authorized officer, consummation of the 
sale would not be fully consistent with the FLPMA or other applicable 
laws or is determined to not be in the public interest.
    Public Comments: The subject parcel of land will not be sold prior 
to the expiration of 60 days from the date of publication of this 
notice of realty action. For a period until September 25, 2008, 
interested parties may submit written comments to the Las Vegas Field 
Office. Only written comments submitted by postal service or overnight 
mail will be considered as properly filed. Electronic mail, facsimile, 
or telephone comments will not be considered properly filed.
    Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or 
other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be 
aware that your entire comment--including your personal identifying 
information--may be made publicly available at any time. While you can 
ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying 
information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be 
able to do so.
    Any adverse comments regarding the proposed sale will be reviewed 
by the BLM Nevada State Director, who may sustain, vacate, or modify 
this realty action. In the absence of any adverse comments, this realty 
action will become the final determination of the Department of the 
Interior.
